about most, the u.s. economy. he again accused republicans of standing in the way. >> we don't have time for anymore games. i understand there's an election coming up. but the american people didn't send us here to just think about our jobs, they sent us here to think about theirs. they sent us here to think about their lives and their children's lives and to be responsible. and to be serious about the challenges we face as a nation. that's what members of both parties have now done with this small business jobs bill. and i hope we can work together to do the same thing on middle class tax relief in the weeks to come. >> let's bring in our white house correspondent dan lothian. dan, the president, he came out, very forceful, saying, yes, there may be a deal on some tax breaks for businesses, small businesses, but there's a big battle brewing over tax rates overall for the american public? >> that's right, this is nothing new that we heard today in that sense because over the past couple of weeks, this is what the white house has been pushing very hard on and they have been going after re
, savannah. this was the worst helicopter crash in about four years for u.s. troops. nine troops dead. this happened in zabul province, which is in the south-southeastern section of afghanistan. an area where the taliban controls much of the territory and where coalition forces have been stepping up their attempts to push the taliban out. we are told this crash happened about 4:00 this morning, local time. the military says that there were no reports of enemy fire. that the crash is still under investigation. now, despite the fact that there were no reports of enemy fire, the taliban has called news organizations, including a call here at nbc news in kabul, to claim responsibility for the attack. they say they shot the helicopter down. the taliban often does that, claims responsibility for things that turn out to be accidents. and indeed, most of the helicopter crashes here have turned out to be accidents. maintenance problems, the incredible amount of dust in the air. this is the deadliest year for coalition forces. after today's crash, 525 coalition forces have died this year. 351 o

'll tell us how the administration is about to go with a prominent republican. let's begin with brianna keilar live in washington. congress is back in session for the big midterm election push and they've got a very big issue on their hands in the matter of whether or not to extend these bush tax cuts. this is -- this is going to be an interesting one to watch in the next couple of days. >> and this is the big issue, jim. this is the issue that in really less than four weeks because they're out of there again. they're out of washington again ahead of the election season, this is what they're going to be dealing with. and obviously, the issue that continues to resinate is republican leader john boehner who had said that he would go along with extending the tax cuts for everyone except for the wealthiest earns, which, of course, is what president obama has gone for. but it's created a jumbled message among republicans. because look at what some other republicans are saying. you have mitch mcconnell who is saying, no, i'm pushing legislation to keep these tax cuts in place across the board
your strengths. work and wages. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "countdown" with keith olbermann starts right now. >>> which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? from fighting the establishment to become it. the tea party has its fifth senatorial candidate who immediately steers away from the tea party. >> the reason we're here today is because of the alaskan voter. the volunteer network that was such an important part of our campaign and all the various endorse mts we got. >> fired up? ready to go? no? can you fake it? the afl-cio's urgent effort to reignite voter enthusiasm. our guest, union president richard triumphka. allan simpson again. first the lesser people. then the head of the older women's league should get a real job. now criticizing vietnam vets because they have been given too many benefits. benefits for which simpson voted as senator. >>> unmitigated gall. the biggest lie. the worst foreign policy decision in american history. and the bushies still want an ftd thank you bouquet for it. >> he couldn't be direct about the surge.
in cleveland, he attacked us for closing a few of these loopholes. mr. boehner and the republicans in congress said no to these projects. fought them tooth and nail. mr. boehner has so far said no to infrastructure, that's bad for america. so let me be clear to mr. boehner and everybody else, we should not hold middle class tax cuts hostage any longer. when these same republicans, including mr. boehner, were in charge, the number of earmarks and pet projects went up, not down. >> is that the presidentç gettg turbocharged in the president hammered boehner throughout the speech including this. when he laid out an incredible small business idea and proposal. i am proposing that all-american businesses should be allowed to write off all the investment they do in 2011. and this will help small businesses upgrade their plants and equipment and will encourage large corporations to get off the sidelines and start putting their profits to work in places like cleveland and toledo and dayton. to most of you, i'll bet this just seems like common sense. but not to mr. boehner and his allies. >> i think t
in washington, thank you. >>> joining us now to talk about the primaries and what happens in november are democrat strategist tonya acker in los angeles and republican strategist dan bartlett in austin, texas. good morning to you both. >> good morning, harry. >> good morning. >> dan, let's talk about this. you got delaware. you got kentucky. you got alaska, utah. one after another after another. are all of the tea party victories good for the republican party? >> well, when you have a situation like with mike castle getting beat in delaware it gives you pause because it's going to be very difficult if not impossible for republicans now to gain that seat in the united states senate. having said that, though, harry, the intensity gap that we are seeing between the two parties this election cycle is mainly being fed by the tea party movement on the republican side so net-net it's still a gain. the prospect of taking over the house of representatives would not happen without this vibrant activity within the tea party so while you have the types of anomalies like we saw last night with mik
. thanks for joining us. 9/11 nine years vilater. here is the view in new york city right now at this moment. the familiar tribute in light snell synonymous with ground zero, symbolizing the fall in towers of the world trade center and serving as a silent reminder of the nearlypeople who died in the terror attacks. earlier in new york at the pentagon and at a quiet field in pennsylvania, solemn ceremonies marked the moments when hijackers took control of four airliners and took aim at american's political and financial capitals. the nation has changed in many ways since then. some of the change is obvious. others more so. we start with this morning's gathering of families and loved ones in manhattan, clutching photos and fighting back tears. newyork fell silent at 8:46 a.m. and again at 9:03, the moments when two jets crashed into the twin towers. acre moment reminiscent of the one that dawned nine use ago. the area remembers a construction senite full of equipment and full of grand plans for a fitting memorial. >> leeann @ lehr. >> daniel thomas awfully tough. >> what has a b
news deputy political director mark murray who joins us live from washington. let's break down what these results mean beginning in delaware. it was a huge tea party win, obviously. the question is, obviously, what will happen in the midterm? >> you know, richard, we just don't know right now. certainly the tea party has given republicans a jolt of enthusiasm and energy even in delaware. honestly, that's the republican party's biggest advantage heading into the midterm electrics. they're the ones who have the enthusiasm and the democrats don't. on the other hand, the tea party has given democrats an advantage in contests like delaware and kentucky and nevada where it's their candidates, the democratic candidates probably wouldn't have a chance to win or even be the favorites without the tea party candidates there. in delaware, for example, chris kuntz goes in as the fro front-runner in this contest. castle would have been the front-runner had he won. >> hey, mark, let's go to new york where we saw paladino come away with the winner there. >> that was just a shock. rick lazio has bee
the best word to use. these voters have been used, either going republican for years or falling out of interest and helping republicans get elected. now they can all organize, they can all get on facebook, they can contact these candidates pretty easily and get revved up and drive up votes in a way they didn't used to. one twhoing point out. it is not just that they're electing tea party nominees instead of the establishment choices, the republicans are who have are not being defeated by the tea party, john mccain, for example, end up agreeing with them on the issues. the tea party has been really good, better than the democratic base, at moving the party in the direct they want. the more conservative direction. >> at this point we might as well add marko rubio and make it six versus five. do you have a sense, did miss angle give us more information than she wanted to by talking about the rhetoric of the primary versus the rhetoric of the general? any sense of who will try move away from the work stream positions to take softer angle, no pun intended? >> sharron angle has been refre
's primary results. zero be on your screen. joining us this morning from our news desk is steve peoples from "roll call." let us begin with the headline from the delaware newspaper, anti-establishment insurgency rocks of delaware. o'donnell in shocker. tea party-backed candidates funds. how would she be able to do it? guest: not surprised here. the tea party express came into town against the wishes of some people in washington. spent a lot of money. in a closed republican primary was able to make a difference and up said cassell. honestly hard to see this as anything but a nightmare scenario for the gop, at least in this delaware race. you heard karl rove right off the race and both people on both sides are doing the same thing. host: people did not think she could win this primary, either. guest: two different races. winning a closed republican primary which -- i looked at the numbers, about 60,000 people voted, about one-tenth of all registered voters in delaware. about one third of registered republicans. a very small sample. you get enough of your friends and the excited base out, you c

[applause] today we are a little over a month away from elections that will likely bring changes in washington. poll after poll shows that voters are not happy. there's plenty of evidence that shows incurveents are unhappy. the economy is still struggling. the senate seems unable to move forward with major legislation as gridlock sets in final days before elections. it's not pretty. it's probably not a great time to be in charge of winning elections all over the country. or is it? our speakers today are two of the men who are in charge of leading their party's efforts
discontent and focus on social crisis. justice.al "u.s. unemployment stands at 9.6%, with michigan at 13.1%. those who do not have jobs are anxious about losing them and watching their benefits declined. incomes are down, and many people are fighting health care expensive or lacking coverage altogether. for many, retirement seems but a dream. the the union is trying to tap into worker discontent and re- commit itself to broader social and justice issues in an effort to rejuvenate its sunken membership level." in "the new york times" there is an article about anna burger.

to the private sector enough for all of us. the tea party does not need to do that. the tea party is the private sector. why take on big business? they create jobs that we need to get the economy going. that is a misguided statement on his part. >>neil: obviously he is putting a wider spin on your rage that it includes those who do not listen, who do not hear you; who do not feel your sense of unfairness. >>guest: here is the bottom line. it is not private industry that spent trillions into debt, $14 trillion. it is in the big business that made the deal with the union workers for g.m. it wasn't big business who picked which banks would succeed and fail. >>neil: you can look at wall street today and it has been positive things in the market and maybe times are better, they are getting better and the market is better, and the economy is getting better so your rage is misplaced. >>guest: it is not misplaced. the economy doing better, that is wonderful. and maybe it is because the tea party has gained so much ground and so much momentum that it is doing better. bill clinton said he wanted to ask wh
